The Woodrow Wilson football team would like to invite ANY and ALL future Woodrow students to attend this Friday night's game against North Forney HS. 

All students that would like to participate in supporting our football program are welcomed to arrive by 7:00 PM to stand on the field with our team and run out of the tunnel with the team! Can't wait to see lots of future Wildcats Friday night!

Please remember that Lake Circle is a single line when dropping off and picking up; the red and blue lanes split at the corner of Hillbrook, not before. 

The Lakewood Early Childhood Parent Teacher Association (LECPTA) is excited to announce that its renowned Lakewood Home Tour, presented by Comerica Bank, will be back in person for 2022!
